Lionel Messi says there's no envy inside the Barcelona dressing room over his Ballon d'Or triumph.

Messi played down any suggestion that his recent crowning as Europe's best player, ahead of team-mates Xavi and Andres Iniesta, will have an adverse effect on squad harmony.

He said: "We know the relationship we have and how we get on. Everything's going to stay the same.

"I'm good with Andres, I'm good with Xavi. My relationship with both is very good and these awards are prizes for everyone - a trophy for the team."
